Human beings are the only living organisms to drink milk from other species. As dairy continues to feel harder and harder on our stomachs, we cannot but wonder – has our yogurt & cheese era finally run its course, or will our peculiar fondness for other animals’ milk live to see another day?
The second option seems far more probable.
In fact, lactose-intolerant humans are now moving on to camel milk, in which we’ve discovered a new plentiful source of proteins and carbs. The unique properties of this milk allow for easier digestion, while simultaneously boosting the human immune system and our overall health.
Here’s why camel milk is a whole different kind of dairy.
Another Type of Protein
When compared with cow’s milk, one gram of camel milk contains more or less the same amount of protein and carbs. So why is it better than, if it is better at all? Well, the type of protein found in camel milk is different and so much better than what dairy has gotten us used to so far.
Low Amounts of Lactose
There are a couple of noteworthy differences between cow’s and camel milk, but the most important one must be a refreshing disproportion of lactose. Buying camel milk and consuming it with gusto is thus allowed to lactose-intolerant people, currently occupying 65% of our population.
Power Bank of Nutrients
Camel milk is said to be nutritionally superior in comparison to cow’s or plant-based milk, and primarily when it comes to magnesium, copper, potassium, zinc, iron, and sodium. It also boasts higher concentrations of vitamins A, B2, and C, as well as unsaturated fatty acids.
Low-Fat And Delicious
If you’re counting calories but you also love all things dairy, it will make you happy to know that camel milk contains less cholesterol than cow’s milk. The unfortunate thing is – camel milk is still more caloric than nut milk, so pay attention to your portion size and daily intakes.
Good Vs. Bad Bacteria
Camel milk trumps cow’s milk in terms of antibacterial and antiviral properties as well. Thanks to this, this super-delicious dairy product rarely causes any trouble to the human digestive system. Because it doesn’t solidify easily either, camel milk is both potable and palatable.
With camel milk, your gastronomic affair with dairy doesn’t have to end anytime soon. Drink it cold and in small portions, or add it to your ice-cream for cheat days
